Like worms: Pinworms can usually be seen directly. They are small and white. First thing in the morning or during the night is the best time to look. A single treatment of oral anti-pinworm medication usually eradicates the problem

Not a usual issue: Pin worm does not affect the vagina. If you think you have pin worm infestation, it can be treated with oral medication. Your whole family may need to be treated. However, there may be some other cause for the vaginal discharge that would require an in-person examination.
